No, I haven’t seen the movie “Get Smart” yet, but the title is all too true regarding this November’s election. Too many of you out there continue to say that you will not vote for Senator McCain and that you are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. I feel your pain. But a vote for a third-party candidate is a vote for Obama. Staying at home and not voting helps elect Obama. And when it comes to the future of our country, helping Obama win is just plain dumb.
Take the recent Supreme Court decision which makes enemy combatants entitled to all the rights of U.S. Citizens when it comes to trying them for their crimes. That decision, 5-4, illustrates how precarious the balance is on the Supreme Court. We need a few more conservative, strict constructionist SCOTUS members. What are the chances of that with a President Obama?
Politics is not black and white, and no candidate is perfect. I noticed that Dr. Dobson is now criticizing Senator Obama, but Dr. Dobson also said that he would not vote for Senator McCain during the primary. If James Dobson truly cares about our country, he should immediately come out and endorse Senator McCain and admit that he was wrong. Sadly, many conservative leaders are more concerned with being “kingmakers” than with making the best choice for our future. This election is too important. The differences between McCain and Obama are obvious. Senator McCain would be a wonderful Commander in Chief for our military. National security should be everyone’s top issue.
Hopefully, as this campaign progresses, the truth about Senator Obama will cause you to wake up. He is dangerous on national security, he is dangerous to our economy, he is dangerous on social issues, and he would be a disaster for the U.S. Supreme Court. Please think about that. And please get smart.
